Kent College Dubai
Kent College Dubai is the sister school of Kent College Canterbury – an outstanding British school that is regularly in the Best Schools UK listings. Kent College Dubai will offer a distinctive British education in an international context that reflects the values and culture of Dubai and the United Arab Emirates. The founding school in Canterbury has been fully involved in every stage of our development, and the two schools will collaborate and work in partnership to offer a unique education in Dubai.
While many new all-age schools in Dubai grow upwards from the primary stage over several years, our impressive new school will open its doors to pupils in all yeargroups from FS1 to Year 10, as well as a Year 12 entry into the Sixth form. So from the outset our pupils will play their part in a complete school, and benefit from the interactions and learning experiences that flow from being a member of a whole community.
Our pupils will follow the British curriculum from the Early Years Foundation Stage in the kindergarten through to GCSE and IGCSE in Years 10 and 11. We will initially offer A-levels in the Sixth form, but as soon as possible we intend to offer the alternative of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as well.
A special feature of Kent College Dubai will be the individual attention given to each pupil. Small classes of no more than 20 pupils, a carefully-developed tutoring system and individualized learning pathways will allow each pupil to be him or herself within the school community.
Music, Art, Drama and Technology all have a central place in the academic and wider curriculum and we expect our pupils to get fully involved in performing, creating and innovating.
British independent schools are renowned for their success in developing young people’s confidence and life skills, and we will do the same through an exciting variety of clubs, activities and sports. The school is equipped with fine outdoor and indoor facilities including a sports hall, separate hockey and 4G astro pitches and a six-lane swimming pool, so that we can nurture pupils’ enthusiasm and skills across the whole spectrum of sporting ability as well as other intellectual and creative areas.
